"mad money" with jim cramer weeknights. >>> tonight we have shown you how to look for signs of what to do with your portfolio over the long run. because the earnings report and the subsequent conference calls are the crucial thing. here's the deal. they don't have to be shoot first ask questions later experiences. actually the opposite. conference calls are ask questions, ask questions, then ask some more questions. and only then maybe take action. we are asking specifically about what the growth of the earnings per share might be and how expensive that would make the stock versus other stocks in the sector. and maybe other stocks in the market as a whole. usually regarded as being the s & p 500. we want questions answered about gross margins, whether they're going to be increasing. why we have to judge if earnings estimates might be beaten in the future. we are looki
of california and the ninth circuit, and then write out of boston there's the gay and lesbian advocates and defenders and they are bringing what is the most effective case against the so-called defensive marriage act, doma and we will find out whether the supreme court will take up one or more or any of those cases and then have -- we should have a ruling by next june. so, is a big moment for marriage and marriage equality and it felt appropriate to write about this and i will tell you a little bit about why intended it for. the book is laid out in the conversation between me and someone who would describe themselves as reasonably tolerant of gay and lesbian people also tolerance isn't all it's cracked up to be. i have a friend who says that the only thing one should have to tolerate is hemorrhoids. [laughter] perhaps a little overstated. but if you for ever been on the receiving end of tolerance it doesn't feel all that much better than intolerance. if someone is begrudgingly at mending your right to exist it just doesn't feel all that warm and fuzzy. so, i imagine a conversations and
, they lose. who is thinking about the children when it comes to these issues? recently, in boston, they reached their agreement and they have been fighting for the past two years and their contract that they just agreed to in boston is very similar to what is on the table in chicago. boston has a no-strike clause. they got a mediator from austin d.c. to work with these folks. they settled this thing. at the end of the day, no kids lost time out of the classroom. we are at the point now where we need to evaluate the educational proposals based on one simple yardstick paraquat will this help a child learn? shouldthe answer is yes, we be for, if the answer is no, we should be against. solutions like accountability and quality teachers, one of the solutions is also apparent choice. i have seen that go run the country that the more parents step up and speak out and pressure the system to change, the more they have to respond. the fallacy is that we expect that bureaucracies will reform themselves from within. i do not know about you, but, in my experience, i do not know any example of
to overcome. here's a look at the advisories. all the way up to boston and maine. i think the areas around hartford, connecticut, and new jersey, where they've seen the bigger snowflakes already, the low visibility is the locations that could pick up that snowfall. again, making its way more and more into our area. slow-moving storm, but still for us, because it's taken so long, the saturated air is going to be in and out. philadelphia getting some mixed conditions. look around coastal new jersey. snow there showing up for us, again. we're going to see light showers. the little spritz of rain that we're getting, scattered right now. that will start to pick up more and more. by 7:00 p.m., light rain, maybe a few flakes that will start mixing in. same thing for 8:00, 9:00. and i think by the time we get to 11:00 p.m., midnight, our precipitation will be ending. temperatures above freezing. but with any wet roads tomorrow morning, may be looking at some slick spots. 43 leesburg. 39 winchester. plenty cold out there, again, with the wind, it's giving us lou windchill readings where it feels li
and mitt romney in boston. former congressman discussed close house and senate races. tom davis and martin frost talk to an audience at this event hosted by the bipartisan policy center for an hour and 20 minutes. >> good morning. and the senior fellow here at the bipartisan policy center. likeaction de all of us who are former members think back nostalgically and how we relate to these things personally. i know tom and martin have great stories to tell and we're fortunate to have too great effective, insightful, and intelligent former members and we will moderate the elections. it went to make a couple of comments. we were on a panel for foreign diplomats. most of the campaign discussion was about obama and romney. someone asked me if there was no discussion of the congressional races. as a matter in america who is elected to congress, it really hit me. i think the answer is yes. as a former nine-term house member i was troubled by the question. i could understand it because most of the discussion concerns they presidential race. i am convinced that the founding fathers were making a clea
and atmosphere is like in boston for governor romney's campaign headquarters. for that we go to hampton pearson. >> reporter: how are you doing, phil. mitt and ann romney voted a few moments ago here in boston. a bit of an irony. no expert or citizen expects romney to carry massachusetts, his home state. experts say he'll be lucky if he matches 36% that john mccain got four years ago when he ran against barack obama. it's not just the fact that massachusetts is a state that tilts democratic. frankly voters here have similar complaints to what has been heard nationally about the former governor. >> i don't think there's a mystery about mitt romney. i think the united states is learning what we learned here. we're never exactly sure if he means what he says and how long he's going to stick with it. >> reporter: the real action in massachusetts is the dead heat contest for the senate between scott brown, the republican, and elizabeth warren, the democrat. voter turnout could top 70%. some 3 million plus votes being cast in one of the most closely watched senate races in the country that could very

met a guy at yellowstone who worked for the public tv station in boston, retired from that job and had always wanted to be a park ranger. key couldn't beat out how to get there so we joined a student conservation association and ginger program. there wasn't anyone in his class over the age of 19. i met a woman in denver whose daughter had gone through teach for america and as she watched her daughter teach in a los angeles classroom she was so moved that she applied for teach for america herself. she was in her early 50's at the time and ended up a year later in a dorm room in july in houston at 115 degrees, sweltering temperature sharing a bathroom down the hall with three, 22-year-olds. it seem like whether they were burrowing up from the street or repelling down from the ceiling or sneaking in the side door there were more and more people who were trying to find these kind of pathways to purpose. we created at encore.org a fellowship, an encore fellowship program which was designed to be a front door for many people who wanted to make this passage. it started in silicon valley with

soul searching about the future of the party. as romney said good-bye to campaign staff at his boston headquarters yesterday, republican recriminations were already in full swing. one member of the campaign's finance committee told "the washington post," "everybody feels like they were a bunch of well meaning folks who were to use a phrase that governor romney coined to describe his opponent -- way in over their heads." plenty more republicans were more than willing to go on the record. >> the romney campaign did nothing -- zero -- nothing -- in the last few days to jump-start the governor. >> after that first debate, i don't know where that mitt romney went. i mean in the summertime, he was raising a lot of money and he was on lake winnipesaukee, he was having fun on the jet ski. >> when conservative commentator ann coulter defended romney, ingraham incredulously disagreed. >> if mitt romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. we have more takers than makers and it is over. >> i'm sorry, this is going to sound cruel, but some of the times i didn't fee
